An all-star lineup of skydiving champions, world record holders and aerial athletes performed at Ifuru Island Maldives to celebrate the launch of the country’s first permanent skydiving drop zone. Making the most of its own airport, the recently opened all-inclusive resort teamed up with 21k-jump World Champion skydiver Will Penny and Skydive Maldives, Ifuru Island to create the skydiving drop zone. 

On the launch of Ifuru Island Maldives’ permanent skydiving drop zone, World Champion freestyle skydiver and Skydive Maldives Manager, Will Penny, said, “We are incredibly happy to be here with Skydive Maldives at Ifuru Island Maldives. We’ve worked very hard for many months, to put everything in place, we have a fantastic team, incredible infrastructure and we can’t wait to welcome the world to experience this.“

“We have a team of very experienced professionals and tandem instructors. After a short safety briefing, within 20 minutes guests can be on a plane harnessed to a very experienced instructor, and enjoy the experience of a free fall and canopy ride before landing safely back on earth and going for a swim in the sea as well as enjoying the rest of this amazing resort.”

Guests can experience skydiving at Ifuru Island Maldives between the months of November and March.
